On #ElectionDay, Attorneys Can Do More Than Just Vote

We are less than one week away from one of the most important days of the year--Election Day. Now that early voting in a number of states has begun, millions of people are heading to their local polling stations--but some citizens are experiencing unprecedented barriers to the ballot box. Voter suppression efforts across the nation have mostly targeted voters of color. On Election Day, we have the opportunity to make our voices heard and ensure a better country for our children.

With that in mind, we encourage all of you to use Election Day to do more than just vote. Below are some ways you can protect the right to vote!

  1. As Latinx attorneys, we can volunteer our time as poll workers to ensure transparency and fairness in one of our country’s most time-honored traditions. Find out how you can become a poll worker here.

  2. You can also get involved by volunteering with Election Protection, a nationwide coalition of nonpartisan, nonprofit organizations that protect voting rights by monitoring elections and providing vital information to voters. Receive excellent training from Election Protection’s team and work the hotlines, 1-866-OUR-VOTE (English) or 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA (Spanish), to provide assistance in real time. Learn more and get involved here.

Election Day is our time, as Americans, to build a better republic, one that honors the right to vote and provides the best possible access to the polls. Join us on November 6, 2018, to do just that!
